    I hope not!! There were news articles today indicating that the Android OS is full of bugs and prone to security breaches. Hope the iOS continues to be safe!

    We often have discussions about Apple iOS being a closed system and Android being open not only here but also in ipadforums.net where I also moderate.

    There lies the problem as there is far more chance that problems can occur including virus issues with the open system. Hopefully Google will sort it out and make it a more rigid operating system. The bottom line is not only iOS is virus free but also Mac OS.
